When you get to be the ripe old age of 99, are you a woman, or a lady? Hmmm, we’ll go with lady. Regardless, this video of 99 year old Virginia Campbell using her first computer, an iPad no less, is pretty neat. She’s reportedly read 2 books on the device thus far while writing 12 limericks as well.

But what makes the story so compelling is that Virginia is battling glaucoma, a condition which has hampered her ability to read and write, two of her favorite pastimes.

That said, one of Virginia’s limericks was a tribute to the iPad, the “addicting” device that has helped her get back to doing some of the things she loves.

To this technical-ninny it’s clear
In my compromised 100th year,
That to read and to write
Are again within sight
Of this Apple iPad pioneer

Pretty incredible, and if it brings a smile to your face, just imagine how what the folks who worked on the device over at Apple must be feeling when they see something like this.

Fox12 Oregon picked up the story as well. Check out the clip below.
